Welcome to the Dougherty Circuit Bar Association Website.  We are a non-profit organization consisting of over 150 attorneys practicing in the Albany, Georgia area.  The Association was started many years ago by several local attorneys seeking an opportunity for fellowship and advancement of the legal profession.  Today, we also seek to offer our members opportunities for education and support and to offer to the community various services, both legal and non-legal.

The Dougherty Circuit Bar Association also has a Younger Lawyer’s Division (YLD).  For information regarding meetings, please contact YLD President Sarah Kjellin at 229-436-1545.
